Purchasing Forms Packets

Self-help packets (PDF) are available for purchase online.  Visit and select "Purchase Self-Help Packet" from the drop-down menu under Payment Option.  

Packet prices range from no charge to $40 (see packet list (PDF) for prices). The Clerk's Office accepts cash, money orders, cashier's checks, debit and credit cards. Personal checks are not accepted. All packet sales are final.

Once a packet has been purchased, an email will be sent to the email address you provided with the packet attached in .pdf format. It is the purchaser's responsibility to print out packets that have been purchased online.

If you do not wish to purchase packets online, you can purchase packets at the Snohomish County Clerk's Office, during regular office hours.  

If you do not need an entire packet, some individual forms can also be downloaded from the Superior Court Forms page or the Washington Courts website.

Notice: The Clerk's Office Staff cannot provide you with legal advice and cannot tell you how to complete the forms beyond the packet instructions.
